Suits Midseason Report Card: A+

by at . Comments

Terrific. Outstanding. Top notch.

The superlatives continue to come in for this summer's run of Suits. So with a multi-month hiatus ahead of us until this USA Network returns with new Season 2 episodes, let's take a moment to appreciate the last 10 episodes, TV Fanatic Report Card Style!

Mike in the Middle

Best Episode(s): “Break Point” and “Sucker Punch” both had me on the edge of my seat from the first minute. In the midst of an effort to save Harvey, everything was coming apart at the seams, and the collateral damage was mounting. These episodes connected the fall and the fallout of the CM Motors memo debacle and propelled the show to its epic finale.

Louis Litt Highlight: By far his moment with the Dictaphone after hours with Harvey in “Meet the New Boss.” You’re right, Louis, in that moment you were “the man.”

Breakout character: Donna Paulsen stole our hearts in Season 1, but she became an especially key player in Season 2. Her dismissal from the firm on the grounds of destroying a document the firm was accused of hiding had Twitter ablaze with #SaveDonna hashtags. From her iconic style to her unrivaled wit, Donna gave us all a reason to tune in every Thursday.

Predictions: I think Tess will be sticking around, creating a love triangle between herself, Mike and Rachel, which is already in full swing. Louis will either attempt to reconcile with the team he froze-out or proceed to make things worse by rebelling against them. Hardman will likely continue to be a factor moving forward as he threatened that his dismissal wasn’t the last page of the story - and I believe him!

Grade: A+

Your turn, TV Fanatics. What grade would YOU give Season 2 so far?

I just wish they would get rid of Rat Boy.
I often just put my hand up to not have to see his ugly face!
He's a horrible actor to have to watch.
Other than that, it's one of TNT's best show's!

I agree on all the points. An A+ season for sure. Although I have a tough time choosing a breakout character because season two did a fantastic job of bringing Donna, Louis, and Jessica to the forefront more than they were in season one.

Hardman was good drama but not very entertaining TV. Donna destroying evidence and not trusting Harvey was awful. Best Episode(s): She Knows , Rewind Louis Litt Highlight: Sucker Punch: "Somebody wants to get Litt up." , Breakout character: Zoe Lawford Predictions: WE get to meet the lawyer Rachel dated at the firm. Grade: C

Fortyseven

Grade: B/B+

Sadly last year i saw half the first episode and was pretty bored. Fast forward to this year and i came down with a bad version of the flu and was bed ridden for a week and a half. i ran out of shows and my mom convinced me to watch Suits Season 1(it was on demand at the them) now for the past three months i've had to endure her snarky 'i told you so!!!' b/c i FREAKING LOVE IT!!!! by the third episode of the first season i was like 'okay this is ok' by the sixth i gave up on sleep and simply watched...i watched the whole first season in 36 hours...lol and this season, omg this season. we all loved donna's wit and loyalty to both Mike and Harvey, but i feel this season she went from supporting the time to being a card-carrying member. i swear she's 80 percent of why i watch the show. Also, i kinda feel bad for Louis, b/c i don't think he truly understands how badly he screwed up. Yes there were times even I thought they were cruel, but at the end of the day, they had his back when it mattered. now he's completely on his own. he'll realize his mistake soon enough. Donna telling him off was by far my favorite scene of the season.

Being from Toronto and a fan of legal drama I decided to give this show a chance when it came on the air last year. Boy am I glad I did. Now I watch it because of the acting and writing. Some of the best on TV.

Wondering who`s the loner who voted F in the poll.

Love this show - and as Terry said, I can't wait to watch it each week. I give the show A+ too. It's right up there with NCIS and Person of Interest! Louis gives me the alternative view of the world. Not everyone sees things the same way,and he's a great reminder of that.

Totally agree on all points. This show just keeps on getting better and better.
